Here is a futuristic move, Samsung has apparently developed a WiFi that speeds up to five times faster than the current ones that we are using. The new 60GHz WiFi technology that is capable of enabling data transmission speeds of up to 4.6Gbps is not just new but it is a record breaking rate of transmission.
To put it in numbers, the current speed for Wi-Fi speeds for consumer electronics devices stands at around 866 Mbps or 108 MB per second. The number would be five times more than that when you will start using the new Samsung WiFI technology.
This will allow data transmission speeds of up to 575 megabytes (MB) per second - enough to transfer a 1GB movie between devices in less than three seconds.
According to Samsung, "Unlike the existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies, Samsung's 802.11ad standard 60GHz Wi-Fi technology maintains maximum speed by eliminating co-channel interference, regardless of the number of devices using the same network. By doing so, Samsung's new technology removes the gap between theoretical and actual speeds, and exhibits actual speed that is more than 10 times faster than that of 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies."
Using something known as a 'wide-coverage beam-forming antennae', Samsung says it has solved the speed issues that come with millimetre waves.
Samsung is trying to commercialize 60GHz millimeter-wave band Wi-Fi technology as soon as early next year, and plans in using it in a wide range of audio visual products, medical devices, Samsung Smart Home products and telecommunication equipments.
